Warnings and Mutes
Warnings - A warning is a private request to stop the reported behavior. Warnings are valid for 48 hours and subsequent warnings for the same reason will result in a mute.
Mutes - A mute will prevent you from using public chat channels. Mutes are private and will not appear in public. They will also result in the message that caused the mute to disappear.
You can continue to use private forms of communication. Mutes will eventually expire, based on their duration. Mutes will stay on your record for 1 year.
Permanent Mutes - A permanent mute has no end. Under special circumstances they may be lifted, but they will not expire on their own.
Bans - A ban will result in your account being unplayable.
Proper Chat Etiquette
Discussing Warnings and Mutes in Public - Since warnings and mutes are done in private, we ask that you keep any discussions of warnings and mutes out of public channels. You are more than welcome to discuss a warning or a mute with the moderator who issued it. If a warning or a mute is discussed in public, it will be flagged as violating this rule.
Inappropriate Language - Use of inappropriate language is not allowed. Chat will do its best to filter out as much inappropriate language as possible. Bypassing the automatic filter by either censoring, masking or misspelling the word will result in a mute. It is also not possible to catch every word that can be considered inappropriate, so a moderator may use their own discretion to determine if a word or phrase is inappropriate. Finally, abbreviations are acceptable, but please keep their use to a minimum.
Harassment - Amaranthine strives to be a friendly community. While we acknowledge the fact that not everybody gets along, we ask that there are no forms of harassment. Harassment in public channels will automatically result in a mute. Moderators do not have access to private channels, so if any harassment is done outside of public channels, we strongly encourage the use of the Settings > Ignore List functionality.
Inappropriate Topics - Not all topics are appropriate for chat. Anything that falls under the following ESRB Content Descriptors is not allowed -
- Drug References
- Sexual Content
- Sexual Themes
- Sexual Violence
- Use of Drugs
Not Changing the Topic - Moderators may use their own discretion and request a change of topic. The topic being changed will be repeated in the request so that it is clear. Some examples of topics that have caused problems in the past include, but are not limited to, politics and religion.
Using a Slur - Use of slurs is expressly forbidden. Slurs include but are not limited to race and sexual orientation. Chat will do its best to prevent you from using a term that is considered a slur, but it does not cover all terms, so a moderator may use their own discretion to determine if a word or phrase can be considered a slur.
Spam - Spam can be classified by a number of metrics -
- Excessive use of capital letters (abbreviations are acceptable)
- Excessive use of mixed case
- Excessive use of emotes (more than 5 emotes in a message)
- Excessive Advertisements (maximum of 1 advertisement every 15 minutes)
- Incoherent sentences
Posting an Inappropriate Link - External links are not actively moderated, so you should be aware that some links may not fully comply with the rules as posted on this page. Under some circumstances, if a link is reported as violating the following rules, you will also be muted for that rule.
- Inappropriate Topics
- Using a Slur
Pornographic Links - Pornographic links are expressly forbidden. Any link to pornographic material will result in an immediate permanent mute, followed by an account ban.
